LWG-certified facilities are leaders in responsible leather production

LWG offers certification through one of four audit standards, developed in collaboration with the leather industry. Leather manufacturers, subcontractors and commissioning manufacturers are certified based on the impact of their production. Traders with their own warehouses can be certified based on their ability to provide line of sight within the leather supply chain. 

Our community represents the largest single leather-focused group in the world, joined together through the shared goal of reducing the environmental impact of leather production on people and the planet. 

Who can get certified?

  • Leather manufacturers
  • Leather traders (with a warehouse)
  • Subcontractors
